Jal Rakshak (The Raintrappers) traces the process followed by WOTR in their Watershed Development programmes.
WOTR’s aim is to support village communities in eradicating their poverty by regenerating their environment through watershed development. To achieve this objective, WOTR, together with its partners, seeks to mobilize the creative potential of the watershed dwellers making this a people’s movement. WOTR also assists NGOs and other VSHGs interested in watershed development by extending them support to build up their capacities.
Today WOTR has come a long way from its specialization – trapping Rainwater. WOTR has programs for children, women, non-conventional energy and micro-finance through Sampada Trust, its sister concern.
